A daily photo post of Selma/Smithfield and the surrounding area.
A classic it is! I really enjoy all your car photos. I've never been much of a car enthusiast and still couldn't tell you what model or make hardly any of the new ones are. But these are quite interesting.
What a beautiful specimen of forever-gone days!
It looks almost exactly like the car my dad had. It was cut off and made into a kind of panel truck he used to haul vegetables to peddle in larger towns. His was a Ford "Model T." and the thing about it was the gasoline was fed into the engine by gravity and was situated in front of the windshield or windscreen that cranked out. The radiator was in the front of the engine. So to get up a hill my dad had to turn the car around and back up the hill to get the gasoline to feed into the engine. Not many people would know that unless they were alive then and experienced it. I was. And I was involved in a bad accident when a drunken man, in a Packard ran into our Model T. Cut my mouth. My teeth were knocked out. My dad had three broken ribs. Nobody had insurance in those days.What a life.I posted information about codes that might interest you.Abraham LincolnBrookville Daily Photo
